Up until now, everything in Road to Glory has been drawn with a mouse. Sketches, outlines, colors, effects. But everything changed when the fire nation-- Uh, but a few weeks ago I got my hands on an actual graphics tablet! (I borrowed it from my best friend, IT'S HER FAULT IM NOT UPDATING jk it's mine alone)

As you can see above, it's giving me lots of trouble XD
After more than a decade of drawing digitally with a mouse, it's really, really hard to get used to a tablet. Right now, it sets my art skills back by what looks and feels like several years. I've realized that the only way to improve is to stop using the mouse and only draw with the tablet.

I can, however, see the *potential* of being good with one. You can get smooth, natural looking lines a lot faster than with a mouse and pen pressure is a wonderful thing.

This nuzlocke's orignal purpose was being a quick little project to get better at drawing. But it has long since turned into a story I want to tell, with characters that have grown on me. I'm so happy that there are people who like to read it, so I want to do it justice!
I can't bring myself to draw pages for RTG with my current tablet skills, but for my own sake, I can't bring myself to pick my trusty mouse back up for it, either.

Again, I'm sorry for the lack of updates and hope you guys can understand where I'm coming from :(

In the long run, I think this will lead to shorter update times and possibly better looking pages, although for now it only means more waiting...

I can't tell when exactly I'll be comfortable enough to deliver the next pages (I only got two rough sketches done before i got the tablet), but I keep practicing and am slooowy improving. Maybe it'll only be a few weeks. Maybe longer. But I'll be back - Red and the others won't have to spend yet another christmas in Mt Moon lmao

Thank you for reading this wall of text and for your patience and for being awesome!

I know what it's like to get used to a tablet. It takes time. Good luck!
